    Hello, I'm new here. Just bought my first Xenforo license. I want to integrate Wordpress with Xenforo using a SSO plugin (yet to be sourced. suggestions?) in the future (not immediately). Which is the best practice for installing Xenforo for now? Which one is it?

    Entirely up to you, though probably not www.mydomain.com because no doubt you will want people to hit your homepage first, rather than your forum.

    The danger is if you use www.mydomain.com now and then move it to /forum later then all of your URLs will change and will probably mess up your search ranks.

    Thanks Chris.

    But if I were to use a subdomain, would it affect my Wordpress to Xenforo integration later on?

    I'm not a fan of subdomains anyway.

    Maybe avoid that one too.

    Subdomains can affect cookie scope which can be relevant for login integration. If the two applications are to share cookies then it's probably best that they are on the same domain.
